St. Luke’s Mews

St. Luke’s Mews is probably the prettiest street in London.

This quaint street is really beautiful thanks to a perfect recipe: pastel-colored mews, cobblestoned pavement, plants and vintage bikes.

You may or may not recognize 27 St. Luke’s Mews thanks to Love Actually. This pink pastel house is where Keira Knightley gets a silent and memorable  declaration of love, remember?

It may look like a movie set but it’s an actual neighborhood. Keep this in mind when taking your photos and respect the local people.

If you’re looking for a special place to stay at during your trip to London, you can stay in one of these mews in Notting Hill. Check here availability and rates.
